Danny Cahill – Biggest Loser Winner Season 8

danny cahill biggest loser winnerBiggest Loser season 8 came to a close last night and Danny Cahill, a married father of two from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, walked away its newest champion. When Danny began his journey at Biggest Loser he weighed in at 442 pounds, one of this season’s heaviest contestants. When he punched through the paper image of his old self, he emerged a man unrecognizable. Not only has Danny lost a downright impressive amount of weight since May 2009, he’s done so in a manner in which he looks healthy. And even more shocking, after standing next to him, you can’t help but wonder where all that skin went.

Danny’s final weight was 191 pounds, a staggering 239-pound loss that equated to a 55.58 percent total loss of body weight. Very impressive.

Here is Danny’s interview live from finale with season four finalist, Hollie Self.

Now, Danny faces the hardest part of all, and we wish him all the luck as he continues his journey.

I would like to know if there is anyone in the Marquette-Ishpeming, MI area who would like to partner up with me on a weight loss thing...trying to lose this weight all alone is close to impossible! Anyone out there willing?!?!?!
